We sold our second home on Camano Island with JP as our selling agent. I decided to go with JP because I believed he was familiar with the area. I came to discover that he truly does know the area and the market, better than I had anticipated. He was easy to get in touch with throughout the process and I was informed immediately when there was buyer interest. He is personable and very professional.
J.P. Was recommend to us by a friend and right away made us feel like friends. He work within our price raenge, looking at a broad range of homes that we were interested in. He help us lock into a home my wife and I both love then and now.
J.P. had a very sound knowledge of this area and its surounding area.
I would recommend J.P. to others for sure.

JP helped us sell our house on Camano Island in spring 2013. He was highly recommended to us and we can see why. His knowledge of the area and the local housing market was excellent. He was enthusiastic, caring, professional and very personable. In short, everything we were looking for. He was spot on in assessing our property and we were able to sell our home quickly and easily due to his expert advice. He had a good marketing plan and we were particularly pleased with the photos which he took, showing great care to showcase our home and property at their best. We strongly recommend using JP for any home sales or purchases. He is the best.

JP asked the right questions and was conscientious of our wish list and budget. He was prepared for our arrival at his office and showed us all potential options within our perimeters - not just HIS listings nor did he waste time showing us properties outside of our perameters. He was patient and kind, the sort of person you enjoy spending several entire days with. He showed us several properties more than once and encouraged us to take our time without even a hint of lost patience. He was very informative which lead to our making a decision to buy much more quickly than we'd anticipated because all our our concerns and questions were addressed. He also has a large network of contractors and service providers that all helped us make a solid decision. His knowledge and good rapport with other agents was apparent when we negotiated our purchase price. He really worked hard for us and it paid off. JP is a stand up guy, honest and just the kind of person you want to be associated with something as exciting and positive as buying a home. Thank you JP!
I've done business personally & professionally with JP for over 10 years.
As well as being a seller and a buyer of my own personal real estate, I have been professionally involved in the real estate arena for almost 20 years: 6 years as a full time Realtor and 13 years as a full time Real Estate Lender. As a Realtor with 5 mouths to feed (and a sole income earner), I learned the hard work, diligence & techniques required to make a living selling real estate. As a Lender I brought my experiences and knowledge as a Realtor to the mortgage side of the business. As a Realtor – I worked with hundreds of Realtors. As a Lender I have worked with hundreds more. So I have significant personal & professional experience upon which to base my recommendation of JP.
A single phrase or word seems inadequate to describe JP - there are a whole string of adjectives and phrases that come to mind. The following are personal observations and comments from other people that I know who have worked with JP: “JP was a true professional”; “what a great guy!”;“JP is really down to earth”; “he’s an expert”; “that guy is quick!”; “what a wit!” “JP sure knows what he is doing”; “JP’s quick timing got us the house”; “what a smart negotiator”; "JP is ‘in the game’ that’s for sure"; “JP sure knows the market!”; “JP is a ‘do-ability’ expert”; “JP sure is wise in the ways of real estate around here!”’; “JP was sooo good to work with!”; “JP sure protects his clients!”; “what a go-getter!”; “JP was extremely responsive”; “we found JP to be honest as the day is long”; “JP exceeded our expectations!”; “JP sure knows the values!”; “what a fun guy to work with”; “JP put our needs first from beginning to end.”
If you are a boss - JP is the kind of guy you want working for you.
If you are a competitor from another brokerage - JP is the kind of guy you don't want to run up against (or you want to hire him for your team).
If you are at war - JP is the kind of guy you want in your foxhole.
If you want to brainstorm real estate scenarios – JP is the one as he’s seen everything
If you are a lender - JP is he kind of realtor you want to work with as he knows the rules of the game, doesn’t try to snow anyone, understands and is an expert with the required paperwork, and is incredibly responsive and easy to work with.
If you are a seller - JP works his fanny off to get your house sold at the highest price and in the least amount of time
If you are a buyer - with his knowledge of the listed and unlisted home inventory, his knowledge of values, and his great timing and negotiating skills, JP will find you your dream home to fit your budget.
JP is a remarkable Realtor. A bonus is that he’s a great human being. It’s not just me – everyone I know who’s worked with JP says this. He’s the kind of person who doesn’t just succeed, but he exceeds at what he does. A lot of this is karma (you get what you give) but certainly it’s because he works so hard and so smart at it. People who work with JP realize this – and benefit from it.

As a Mortgage professional who has been in the industry for over 10 years I have worked with a number of real estate agents. As many will agree there is a huge difference between a good agent and a great one. JP has proven himself to be a great agent on several occasions. His knowledge of the Stanwood/Camano area is exceptional; in this current market, knowledge is an absolute must. In addition JP is full of energy and extremely aggressive when it comes to finding the right property and negotiating the terms of the agreement for his buyers. The same qualities put him ahead of his peers when it comes to listing properties as well.

JP was wonderful and such a pleasure to work with. He took the time to listen and understand our needs and wants in looking for a house. JP is very knowledgable and connected within the community, all the resources that you need to close on a home are one smile and call away. We highly recommend him to everyone.
It was great to have someone like JP on our side helping us. His experience and knowledge combined with attention to detail is what helped us be the winning bidders on a multiple offer forecloser deal.
JP was always available to look when we wanted, and really worked fast when it came to making an offer. That is what you need in this market right now. Even working crazy late hours to make sure things got done and happened when needed.
We feel very lucky to have had an expert like JP help us get a great deal on a great house!
